From the moment you set foot in this place, you are transported back to the early 80's. The thick smell of cheap perfume tries to cover up the fact that the carpets have not been replaced in more than 20 years. The main color scheme is yellow and dusty pink. There is a complete lack of charm and no attention... More

Small, cosy hotel situated 15 min walk away from Max Planck Institute. Bus lines (3,4,17) to the city center. Extremely clean room although the decor is a bit dated. Breakfast is good. The only negative thing is the wired internet connection... (although it is free).

I liked: - clean - the shower (pressure, temperature) I disliked: - overpriced - poor illumination in the bathroom - not beautiful, charmless room - breakfast not included in the price?? That was unclear to me when I booked. - average breakfast - staff doesn't speak much English, and not particularly nice - no wireless connection (only wired) Other stuff:... More

Even is a little far away from the city center, the hotel is situated in a nice green area but there are buses with good connection to the center. The rooms are big and clean; The only thing that I should recommend is more lights in the bathroom. Breakfast is good even if is a little repetitive.

The two other places I have stayed in in Tübingen are nicer (see my reviews). Unfortuanately they where both closed at this time. The room was ok, the whole hotel very dated. The room was ok, as was the bed. Everything is clean. The house dog was a real friendly animal! Very small bathroom. The hotel is totally in the... More

We stayed here for one night on our way home after a holiday in Europe. We chose the town because its old town looked interesting, which turned out to be the case. The hotel is located in a quiet residential area, and we certainly had a peaceful night. This was perhaps helped by the fact that there seemed to be... More

Our room was comfy and clean. Staff were a bit "cold", not very friendly. Hotel difficult to find, you do need a car as the hotel is 20 mins from town centre. Breakfast was ok, poor for the money we paid tho. we only stayed one night so we did not mind the service and lack of hospitality.

This is a small well appointed hotel in a pleasant suburban area of Tubingen, at a 15 minutes downhill walk from downtown. Quite convenient if traveling by car, not so much so otherwise. The service was acceptable, although the staff was not helpful at all when asked for some information that required a phone call. We would still recommend this... More

My husband and I were looking for a moderately priced hotel where we could get some work done while visiting family in Tuebingen, and the Katharina Garni fit the bill perfectly. The superior double room we stayed in for about two weeks was large and comfortably (if not particularly elegantly) furnished, the bathroom was clean and modern; and the breakfast... More

Small peaceful boutique hotel in suburban hills of Tubingen. Quiet and 15 min walk to town or buses every 10 mins nearby. Family business with Frank fluent in English and very helpful. Generous German breakfast with heaps of excellent coffee! Hotel on three floors. Rooms with views to hills of Tubingen. Medium size with shower and toilet.
